The Outer Banks is obviously known for its gorgeous beaches, but if you ask anyone that loves our coastal community, the second best thing about the OBX is the food. Each spring, we celebrate our local food scene at Taste of the Beach. This annual food and wine festival promises 4 days of food, drink, and fun with a variety of food and beverage centric events. For the Brewing Station, this gives us an opportunity to show off our creativity and innovation when it comes to our cuisine and home-brewed beer. This year, we’re hosting 3 exciting events for food and brew lovers to enjoy. Each event offers a unique experience, from an upscale 6 course dinner to a laid-back micro beer fest. Check out our event schedule for Taste of the Beach 2017 and make plans to join us for these one-of-a-kind events.
